Blue/green light falling from the sky (NE) viewed from West Seattle

Last night at 10:15pm or so, I was on my balcony looking NE (from the North Delridge area of West Seattle) and noticed a light falling in the sky. There were a few planes in the air, and this was clearly not one of them. It appeared to be a very bright star, literally falling from the sky. It reminded me of a flare coming out of its ascent. It moved slower than a ‘shooting star’, was definitely brighter, and there was almost a blue-green tone to the light it gave off. About half way through the drop, the light stopped very briefly, then started again until it was out of sight.

It could have been a number of things, but I wanted to post in case anyone else saw this.
